This custom car was originally built in New Jersey. My father purchased the car in 2012, and had it shipped to Arizona where he began adding custom touches. He started with the interior; replacing all the fabric, headliner, carpet, and added custom lighting. Next, he removed the exhaust and added all custom side exit exhaust. He also added a polished Edlebrock air gap intake and holley carb. Unfortunately, he became ill and has since passed. I had the car shipped to me, where it currently resides in a suburb of Chicago, Illinois.
It is an all-steel body with the roof chopped 3-inches.
